Huge OT Recruit Damian Prince Picks Maryland
Prince was also considering Florida, South Carolina, Alabama and Arizona. His recruitment was anything but boring, while he could have went anywhere in the country—any coach would have welcomed him with open arms.
There is no doubt that Prince will play right away, which is a main reason why he decided to stay home. The highest-ranked player in Maryland also wanted to play in front of his family. Prince also has an underdog mentality, so Maryland’s recent struggles had no impact on his decision.
Prince is known as a run-blocking specialist, who will surely put a smile on head coach Randy Edsall’s face. Edsall is known for wanting to run the ball, which is what the Terrapins need to do next season, as the program joins the Big Ten Conference.
This was a HUGE signing for Maryland. If Edsall wants to build the program, he’ll need to keep the best players in the state at home. He’s off to a great start; Prince will make an immediate impact and may be a program-changing commitment.
You may see future top talent stay at home and play for Maryland in the future. If that happens, you can credit Prince for starting the trend.
